i voted for open office, buti have to add honerable mention for gnome office. abiword adn gnumeric are actually better apps overall (esp for speed) but they just don't have the compatibility, and thats because open office was derived from a MAJORLY supported suite. speaking of which, i haven't touched star office since the 6 betas (the last thing that could be had for free) and it might be worth the money, but no more than i need, openoffice does the job well for free

My vote is now changing. Having updated to OO 1.1, I can say that when I want to use a suite then this is it. Some dramatic improvements. It seems a lot faster in quite a few operations.

Office Suites are useless. I think it's better to have separated programs for each thing, for example, If I need to write something I write it in plain text (perhaps rtf) or HTML, if I need a spreadsheet... well I never need a spreadsheet....p Database... hehe, sql... web design... again, plain html, wml, or even JS somewhere. I don't use flash because it takes too much time to load over a slow conection and because there is no GOOD free solution.

what else?? presentations, slides, etc? again, xml or docbook.
